Steelers Running Backs Need15 Hour Drug Education Class

by Mike Miller October 31, 2014
Does it ever shock you when you hear about a professional athlete using drugs? Of course it doesn't. Why? Because it happens almost every week. What shocks me is that they would jeopardize their fragile, short-lived careers to smoke a joint or two. Such is the case of two running backs for the National Football League's (NFL) Pittsburgh Steelers. On August 21st, police pulled over Le'Veon Bell's Chevrolet Camaro. Both Bell and his teammate, Lagarrette Blount (pronounced "blunt" pun intended), w... [More]

by Mike Miller November 29, 2013

A violation of NASCAR's substance-abuse policy has cost crew chief Todd Parrott his job with Richard Petty Motorsports. As reported in www.sbnation.com. Parrott had been the crew chief for the No. 43 car driven by Aric Almirola, but was suspended indefinitely last week by NASCAR after failing a random drug test. ... [More]

by Mike Miller June 11, 2013
For those of you who think professional wrestling is a total farce, just try going through the charades they go through week-in and week-out. While the matches are choreographed by some of America’s finest choreographers, make no mistake, there is extreme physical impact on pro wrestlers’ bodies. There is no denying there are many addicted to prescription medication, alcohol and other drugs. For such a wild bunch they manage to stay relatively clean with respect to getting caught. ... [More]

Chris Washburn Understands Need for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Classes

by Mike Miller June 3, 2013
There are far too many stories about athletes whose careers were destroyed by drugs and alcohol. There are far too few stories of their redemption. Chris Washburn’s is a story of redemption. Washburn, who had dedicated more than a decade of his life to getting high, had never felt so low. The former basketball standout — one of the most highly recruited high-school athletes in North Carolina history — sat quietly with a crack pipe in his hand, a .44 Magnum pistol in his lap, a...

Patriots Player Understands the Value in Drug Classes

by Mike Miller January 16, 2013
There is no arguing that drugs and abuse of chemical substances are prevalent both in society and the National Football League. A week does not go by where some NFL player does not make the news for some incident involving drugs or alcohol. While I have long taken the stance that athletes and celebrities should not be role models, sometimes they are worth. Former New England Patriots’ player Tony Collins is worthy of role model status. As reported in www.thesunchronicle.com. As a running... [More]
